Applies to TestComplete 14.30, last modified on November 21, 2019

TestComplete can only test Electron-based applications distributed as Windows-compatible executables. To make our Quick Start application available for testing, we will run it by using Electron prebuilt binaries:

  1. Get the Quick Start sample application’s source files from the Electron repository:

    https://github.com/electron/electron-quick-start

  2. Get the Electron prebuilt binaries from the Electron repository:

    https://github.com/electron/electron/releases

  3. Unpack the binaries.

  4. Place the Quick Start application files you have downloaded from the repository (package.json, web pages, scripts, and other files) to the resources/app folder of the unpacked Electron binaries:

  5. (Optional.) If you want to, rename the downloaded electron.exe binary to fit your tested application name, for example, quick-start.exe:

  6. Launch the resulting binary. Electron will start your application:
